Have been through this airport many times and finally found a great hotel to stay at between flights. Easy 5 min walk from baggage area to the hotel located above a parking garage. Easy, friendly check-in on both days used. Clean, quiet room with excellent breakfast included

A really good overnight stay. Convenient for Airport conferencing. Clean, comfortable and quiet room made for a restful night's sleep. Some difficulty finding my way along room passages - needs better exit marking. Would have been nice to have had bottled water in my room. Delicious breakfast choices. Breakfast well supervised by catering manager. Professional, friendly and efficient staff in...

This was our second stay at the City Lodge Hotel OR Tambo Airport and again we were very pleased. We arrived mid morning after two long overnight flights. Last year we were not able to get an early check-in despite our agent's request, but this year a room was available and we were able to get into our room immediately...

Very convenient hotel if you have an early morning flight. We were able to walk to the airport to get dinner as well, which was really nice. In the morning because our flight was so early, the hotel had packed a breakfast box for us which helped since I was travelling with 6 year olds. Easy stuff - yoghurt, fruit,...

After arriving at 1 am in the morning you too can stand at reception and be ignored by the somewhat awake staff. On this occasion all I wanted was 3 or 4 hours sleep while waiting for a connecting flight. Despite having booked a room some time ago the 'only room available ' was one at the far end of...

Again this was a great stay. After traveling from the US all the way to JNB it is a relief to push my luggage across to the hotel and have a good night's rest. Check-in can be very slow. However, the rooms and service is the worth the wait. The exercise room is clean and has a neutral smell (in...

After a long flight it was nice to be able to water straight over to the hotel and grab a quick dinner before going to bed. The front desk was very friendly and helped us get set up in our room quickly.

Staying at an airport hotel I was dubious but was pleasantly surprised - food was yummy and good value and room was very comfortable and so quiet, slept very well. Breakfast was delicious and the gym is also good for a small hotel. We ate dinner there and menu had a lot of choice and prices were good as well....

Five of us stayed at this hotel on a recent visit to jet park. The hotel rooms are very comfortable. Nice large beds, well insulated from noise. Goody was good in the restaurant and the breakfast table has a nice selection both cooked and continental food.
